My grandson attended kindergarten at Echo Loder for one week. My grandson was excited to get to go to school, but after only a couple of days at Echo Loder he said he hated school. We witnessed some very backward methods for dealing with children at Echo Loder. It was a terrible experience that required intervention by the State Superintendent. We have since enrolled him in Alice Smith instead. We love Alice Smith. Echo Loder should be shut down. If I could Echo Loder zero starts, I would.

This will be perhaps the first review Echo Loder has ever gotten from a former student of my age! I attended Echo Loder from 1960-1963--in 1963, my family moved to Indiana and I had to leave... :( Over the years I have had many, many wonderful memories of my time there! Infact, I consider my 4th grade teacher there (Mrs. Peyton) to have been the greatest role model of my life--it was because of HER that teaching elementary school became my 'dream job'. It was a great school then, I can only believe it remains the same. HOME still means NEVADA to me! Bonnie

Ms. Armelleno is by far the most caring and generous teacher I have ever encountered. She is a true professional and a gift to her students. Teachers like her make our nation what it is.

I had three children at this school and it was amazing the fun they had. The teachers are great there. The principal has a lot of involvement and showed genuine care. I like the 'hands off' rule it made bulling very hard thus making it safe and comfortable for the students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
